    oh ok. That is one of my favorite ride. I was sad when they got rid of this ride at WDW.

    Yes, it is open this week. The rehabs for both Mr. Toad's Wild Ride and Alice In Wonderland were moved back until later in the spring.

    What does suck however is that Disneyland's Winnie The Pooh has the worst version out of the four. On a scale of 1 to 10, Tokyo is a 10, WDW and Hong Kong are both a 7, and Disneyland is a 6. Thanks a lot Cynthia. Are you getting your unemployment checks from The Gap at your home address yet? How's that workin' out for ya?

    But it should be noted that Disneyland is the undisputed king of classic dark rides. Disneyland has seven dark rides, plus Monsters Inc. next door at DCA, which makes a total of eight dark rides within a 15 minute stroll of each other at The Disneyland Resort.

    Walt Disney World has three dark rides. Seriously, three. I'm not sure what happened there, but it couldn't be because they were busy making Pirates of the Caribbean better.

    Tokyo has four dark rides, although that number includes their Winnie The Pooh which is more like a major E Ticket attraction that leaves you slack-jawed in amazement.

    Paris also has three dark rides, but you kind of expect that type of attempt because, well, they are French.

    Hong Kong has.... one dark ride. Pathetic.

    What is your classification of a dark ride? They way I count it they have...
    Snow White's Scary Adventures
    The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    Peter Pan's Flight
    The Haunted Mansion
    Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
    Journey into Imagination with Figment
    Spaceship Earth
    Nemo's Undersea Adventure
    Ellen's Energy Adventure

    Now, maybe some of these are pushing it, but surely some of them should fall under the classification of "dark ride".

    Now, maybe some of these are pushing it, but surely some of them should fall under the classification of "dark ride".
    In the theme park industry a "dark ride" consists of a small car traveling past sets. It is most often propelled by a bus bar ride system, and often uses black light paint effects. (Peter Pan is the big exception with the flying boats, but the scale and scope of the show sets are classic dark ride fare.)Snow White, Peter Pan and Winnie the Pooh are all classic dark rides. At Disneyland there are also Alice In Wonderland, Pinnochio, Mr. Toad and Roger Rabbit dark rides. Superstar Limo was the first 21st century dark ride at DCA, but it had a poor choice of subject matter and was shut down to become the excellent Monsters Inc. dark ride. When Disney Parks used ticket books, all of these dark rides typically required a C Ticket to experience. They were strictly middle of the road ride experiences that were never meant to be a "BIG DEAL!" during your day at Disneyland. Just fun little dark rides.

    While the other rides on your list, many of them the signature attractions in Epcot pavilions, are "dark", they are not considered "dark rides" by the theme park industry. Things like Pirates, Mansion, etc. are on a much larger scale and become something entirely different than the Snow White ride. Most of those rides on your list are classic E Tickets, using advance animatronics, unique ride systems or boats, and big budget special effects and showmanship. They are definitely rides meant to be a "BIG DEAL!", and those that existed prior to the 1980's all required E Tickets to experience.

    Disneyland is full of dark rides that are routinely maintained and updated. Walt Disney World has a small handful of dark rides, that quite frankly are not well maintained and are rather sad to see in their current neglected state.

    It's hot and steamy in that part of the ride. They heat the room and steam pours out of the demons eyes and out of holes in the rock walls. On a cold day it's a nice blast of hot and humid air. On a hot day it's, well, hellish.

    for some reason that part of the ride really freaks me out so i never ride it. after getting hit by the train you go into this all red really hot and musty room with all these devils popping out at you
    If we chase the stars to lose our shadow, Peter Pan and Wendy turned out fine.
